Wilson could see its first frost of the season on Monday morning after a cold front barrels through this weekend, bringing rain chances and plunging temperatures into brisk fall territory.

After a daytime high just below the seasonal average of 72 degrees Saturday, the front is expected to bring a 70 percent chance of showers in the afternoon and evening along with blustery winds, Albert Thomas Jr. explains in this weekend's installment of The Wilson Times Weathercast brought to you by ENCWheels.com.

High temperatures on Sunday and Monday will struggle to reach the mid-50s, there is a chance of frost on Monday and a brief warmup Tuesday precedes another cold front expected to sweep through around midweek.

The record high is 88 degrees, set in 1953, and the record low is 27, reached in 1981.
